Description

This is the introductory core course for the International Studies major at the University of Michigan. The course explores human rights, human development, and human security in historical and comparative perspective using multiple disciplinary approaches. The curriculum is divided into six modules that cover:

  • globalization;
  • international relations and organizations;
  • human rights and humanitarianism;
  • global environment and health;
  • human development; and
  • culture and identity.

Honors:
Students in the Honors section of INTLSTD 101 will have discussions with the primary instructor for the course. These discussions will address special topics that build on material covered in lecture and enable the students to explore key topics of international significance in more depth.

Students in the Honors section will also write a longer paper and make one short presentation to their group.

Course Requirements:

Testing for this course will be asynchronous and will consist of multiple-choice questions and short answers that will be submitted via Canvas during a designated time frame.

Intended Audience:

Students interested in international issues; especially those planning to pursue the International Studies major or minor. This course welcomes entirely online participation. While there will be optional in-person components, no part of this course requires you to be on campus or present in-person.

Class Format:

The weekly lectures for this course will be recorded and made available asynchronously. We will also have biweekly discussion sessions that require synchronous participation.
